    Default Lock my bag?

    hey all!
    I'm going to be bringing a backpack to coachella this year so i can keep my water bottle, camera, cell phone, and wallet inside. Since coachella is massive i dont want anything to get stolen.

    I was wondering. Will security let me bring in one of the little TSA locks to put on my bag?
    ill have it unlocked and ready for them to take a look inside if they want to at the gate, i just wanna keep it locked once im inside.

    Is this something that sounds realistic?
    or would bringing it be a waste of time?

    this is what it looks like

    you called me a troll just for spreading the word of the Nanerpus. Nanerpus did not call for that. and sticking out your digital tounge makes it none the better! and how could i be too serious? Nanerpus!

    so no one goes and opens up my bag?


    i understand i can get a locker
    i got one last year, im just wondering about if they'll let me in with a lock
    id rather not have to go back and forth between the sahara or what have you and the front gate. Seems like a total time waster you know?
    Id also like to keep a water bottle or two on me but not in my hand so that i dont have to fight the crowds when i want a drink.

    Lock your bag? I suggest y'all Zip It instead! (Besides, what good will a lock do if someone just takes the bag away from you?) DON'T STRESS...Coachella peeps aren't like that...
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    lock so no one unzips it!
    i know its very unlikely someone will.
    all the times ive been at coachella ive never been worried about someone stealing anything of mine, but im a very paranoid person and would like to take some extra precautions just incase :P

    and the bag will be on my back the entire time.

    Why wouldn't they just steal your whole bag instead of rummaging around and just getting your drugs!
    They should get your drugs AND your porn

    if i wanted to steal your bag, the lock isn't going to stop me.

    if i wanted to open your bag, the lock would slow me down. But you can easily rip the bag open with some keys.


    i don't see the point, honestly.

    Note to self:

    1) Bring bolt cutters

    2) Look for douche with lock on back pack

    no, i don't believe you won't have a problem. all the crap that people bring in, a lock would seem to be the least of security's worries. although, i had a hairbrush in 2007 that they almost took away on sunday because it "looked like a weapon". i made a joke and they let it slide. but you just never know with security.

    no shit a lock won't matter if somebody swipes the bag. doc wants to put a lock on the backpack so some sneaky fuck doesn't unzip it and swipe something out of it while he's wearing it. is it really that hard to understand?

    and chedder, if you need bolt cutters to get into a locked backpack, you should just end your life now

    Biggfoot, if you're too dense to realize what I just did there, I'm surprised you're still alive at all.

    I worried about this last year, and decided to go with a small Nike bag (not backpack, like a workout bag).

    Even in the biggest crowds, no one grabbed anything, and I if they did they just would have gotten some water, a spare camera battery, and trail mix.
